American Airlines reported they will be grounding their fleet of 757s starting next month. This also includes the six remaining 767s which will be mothballed in May as well.

American plans to offer two-week paid sick leaves for employees who have confirmed cases of coronavirus as well as for employees who must be quarantined. It is seeking agreements with its labor unions to implement the policies for their members. Also, it will offer voluntary leaves, suspend hiring for at least 60 days and it will defer new hire classes in all job categories.
